Stamford guide group set to start tours on Sundays
A new group is set to start ‘tentatively guiding’ in Stamford.
The mayor’s guides were set to launch in March but lockdown put their tours on hold.
Now, with social distancing, they can at last take to the streets and delve into the town’s colourful history.
Simon Whatling, one of the five new guides, said: “We are all very excited.
“We are keen to get started - we are just very cautious about upsetting local people.
“Obviously people in Stamford are our bread and butter.”
The tours, which take place on Sundays and start at the railway station car park, will be in groups of up to five people and will avoid stopping in busy places.
“Life is getting back to normal,” said Simon. “We have chosen Sundays because we think a tour is a nice thing to do with the family.”
“You can discover lots of interesting history and facts, and then go off for a coffee afterwards.”
Simon added that the 75-minute tours are suitable for people already familiar with the town, and for tourists.
